Has Sweet Home been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The iconic Netflix horror finally returns with season 2. Before we got Squid Game, Sweet Home had pretty much taken over Netflix Korea with its bite-sized duration, quite different from the usual 16-episode shows, familiar faces and action-packed apocalypse plot.

The misfits of Green Home must put aside their differences and band together to survive the monster apocalypse where an infection doesn’t turn you into a zombie, oh no, it turns you into a superpowerful monster with a taste for humans. 

So, after watching season 2 in its entirety, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is Sweet Home season 2 about?

Sweet Home 2 focuses on the aftermath of Green Home being destroyed. The humans are taken to a shelter while Ui-myeong possesses Sang-wook and hijacks Hyun-soo’s truck. The government has nefarious motives as they use Dr. Lim to find a vaccine for them and try to kill the remaining survivors.

It doesn’t end well and the military takes over and relocates with the humans under a stadium. However, the existing occupants are not happy about it and start clashing especially after Eun-yu causes the death of one of their own.

We have extensive coverage of Sweet Home across the site including recaps for every episode. You can find those HERE!

Has Sweet Home been renewed for season 3?

At the time of writing, Sweet Home has been renewed for season 3.

While it is usually the norm for K-dramas to only be a one-season wonder, this has started to change with more and more successful sequels like Kingdom 2 and Strong Girl Nam-soon.

And the fact that Sweet Home is a Netflix Original bodes well unlike originals of other countries. Netflix Korea’s renewal decisions mostly depend on how popular a show is, how many people watched it immediately and the drop-off rates. So, of course, it was no surprise when after the first season, they announced Sweet Home 2 and Sweet Home 3 back to back.

What we know about season 3 so far:

Despite Sweet Home being set on a webtoon, we don’t know much about future storylines as the show deviated from the source material with the season 1 ending. However, we do have some info on the technicalities. It will be directed by Lee Eung-bok who directed the previous 2 seasons and is known for Descendants of the Sun and Goblin. Sweet Home 3 is set to air on July 19, 2024.

The main cast is out as well with many familiar faces reprising their roles like Song Kang as Hyun-su, Lee Jin-wook as Sang-wook/Ui-myeong, Lee Si-young as Yi-kyung, Go Min-si as Eun-yu, Park Gyu-young as Ji-su, Yoo Oh-sung as Sergeant Tak, Oh Jung-se as Dr. Lim, Kim Mu-yeol as Sergeant Kim and Jung Jin-young as Chan-young.

We’ll be sure to update this page if there are any changes on this front.
